  • Begin to form speech

    Cognitive development: I begin to make my first sounds. Babies after 3 months start responding to and listening to a person talk, start watching a person's face and expressions, and begin to start making noises themselves. These noises are often described as a "cooing" sound...it is almost like a melody.

    Cognitive Development: After 6 months, I begin to babble and string together different sounds. I start recognizing my native language, start responding to my own name, and use a tone of voice (or sound) to express emotions.

    Cognitive development: After 1 year, I am now able to express a few simple words (mommy, daddy, ect.). I am using more consonant sounds and tones to express myself.

    Cognitive development: After 2 years, I am able to string a few words together and and make short, coherent sentences.

I can also begin to think of things without the object being present. Between the ages of 4 and 7, my speech becomes more social, and I am able to grasp more logical concepts then I was before. However, reality is still not strongly rooted in my mind. My immediate perceptions rule my judgement.
